Just when I thought it was June and the weather was turning to Awesome, yet another irritating late season trough is forecast to affect the region Thursday. I had planned to drive home on 191 and enjoy the awesome Arizona views of the Coronado Trail, but if it is going to be overcast or mostly cloudy and potentially stormy, I likely won't do that. I was looking forward to avoiding Phoenix traffic and Flagstaff all together. Oh well.
The storm looks like it might be good for southern California as well as the southern and central Sierra, but will be dry to a blowing nuisance for AZ. It will probably just be blowing dust that will bury the broccoli and lettuce seedling I planted last week before I left.
La Nina seems to be dying, and the recent forecast calls for a neutral phase, no El Nino. Wonder how that will play out for Monsoon Season? Too early for winter 2013, but I suspect southern Arizona could use a normal one, instead of these dry winters.
Spring winds are still annoying, but if they aren't filled with dirt or cold, they aren't that bad.
